Mold making continued

Here are the resin stages of my mold making process. This is very tricky and I would recommend a mask over your nose as the fumes are bad for your health (in the long run) I dropped objects like buttons and beads in from above throughout the resin layers. Might be making a tutorial soon for the process from start to finish.

This shape was deliberately basic due to it being my first ever resin piece. Happy with the way it turned out even if all the buttons did float down to the top of the head lol

Riusuke Fukahori inspired work

 So, I am trying a new technique using resin layers made famous by the amazing Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori.

Here on the left is my starting point of the mixed resin with catalyst setting in the base of this bowl.

 I will be painting the fins of the fish on this layer then building them up with different areas of the fish to give it a 3 dimensional look. It will take me at least a week for the full image to appear as each layer needs a minimum of 24 hours to dry. I am pretty excited about this project as it is the first time I have used resin and it will be both a painting and a sculpture! Pretty cool, huh? I am going to try and make a video tutorial or photograph the process so all you lovely creative people can have a go too. Also if the end result looks so realistic I will have to prove it’s not just a photo of a fish! Lol Wishful thinking (or even fishful thinking haha)

Please watch this video for the amazing man at work:
